Right - Aerial view of Hwy 2A facing east from Highland Creek towards Hwy 401 and Port Union Road. Note the narrow width of this 1940s era divided highway compared to the current width of Hwy 401. Up until the 1970s, Hwy 401 was of a similar design all the way out to Oshawa. Between 1972 and 1980, Hwy 401 was widened from four to six lanes between Morningside Avenue in Toronto and Ritson Road in Oshawa. Kingston Road (Hwy 2) can be seen paralleling Hwy 2A in this photo. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Looking east towards Oshawa along Hwy 2A from Highland Creek (Lawson Road) Overpass. This short but interesting section of highway has changed very little since it officially opened in 1947. This unspoiled divided highway provides a rare view of what a 1940s Ontario freeway looked like. See an Enlarged Photo here.
